Wasatch Charter School at 1458 E. Murray-Holladay Road invites its neighbors to the annual Harvest Festival on Oct. 15. The event is hosted by the Wasatch Family Foundation and run mostly by its students, kindergarteners to eighth-graders. The outdoor event runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Families will enjoy hands-on crafts, live musical performances, shopping local artisans and savoring tasty treats. Visitors will find art, homemade goods, a community bake sale, food trucks and more,” said Lyn Spataro, member of the Wasatch Family Foundation governing board.

Some of last year’s highlights were a pumpkin rolling contest, apple cider made by students while you wait, and donations from local bakeries. Popular booths included jewelry artists, fabric arts and wood turning. All funds raised support the school’s specialized programming.

Visitors are asked to park at Creekside Park adjacent to the school or at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints parking lots nearby which have given parking permission for this event.

 “Harvest Festival is a showcase for all we do,” Spataro said. “Infuse the season with magic all while supporting children’s education.”
